Be the Help
What would you do if you could not afford your LIFE-SAVING MEDICATIONS? Where would you TURN FOR HELP?
Anne has Type 2 diabetes. She used the emergency room at Lakewood Hospital five times in one year. She didn't know her blood sugar levels because she couldn't afford her test strips. She wasn't taking her insulin on a regular basis because she couldn't afford her medications. She frequently got sick and missed work.
Her diabetes was out of control. She needed help.
Anne makes just a bit too much to qualify for Medicaid, and yet she barely makes ends meet. She was making tough choices between buying her life-saving medications and test strips or paying her bills.
Then Anne found the help she desperately needed … Lakewood Hospital’s Diabetes Assistance Initiative. The Diabetes Assistance Initiative covered the cost of Anne’s diabetes medications and testing supplies. Now her blood sugar is under control, her blood pressure has decreased, she has lost weight, and has stayed out of the emergency room. Her life is dramatically better. She is successfully living with diabetes.
Your gift today will help patients like Anne whose survival relies on the kindness of others.
